Media installation

YAMAOKA Junichi [Japan]


A media installation expressing the moment an actual object turns into a virtual one. As a glass orb is lowered into liquid, it morphs into a freely scalable and fragmentable wireframe video image. The orb disappears from sight in the liquid paraffin filling the tank, as they share the same refractive index. Taking advantage of this feature, a display projects video imagery into the liquid in the location of the orb.
